My healthy lifestyle

I have tried SP last year and almost made it. But I derailed 2 weeks before my goal after many "side trips" and over time gained all my weight back. Today I am exactly where I was in December last year: 139 lbs. I just went shopping for clothes and felt sad that I could only buy tops, no pants. They all looked bad on me.

So what does it take for me to commit and stick with it until I succeed?

I have tried SP last year and almost made it. But I derailed 2 weeks before my goal after many "side trips" and over time gained all my weight back. Today I am exactly where I was in December last year: 139 lbs. I just went shopping for clothes and felt sad that I could only buy tops, no pants. They all looked bad on me.

So what does it take for me to commit and stick with it until I succeed?
• First and foremost, believe in myself and believe I can do this.
• Second, be focused, determined and disciplined. I am doing this for myself, not others.

Why do I want to lose weight?
•Because if I do, it implies I am exercising regularly, which I like doing but have a difficult time with motivation.
• Because I will be able to feel good about my accomplishment instead of acting like a victim. Enough of that. Enough of blaming others for my emotional hunger.
• Because I want to.
• Because I can.

Here I am, at the eve of October 1st and giving myself 2 months to do this. I WILL DO IT, MARK MY WORDS.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3 you know you're really beautiful. If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always nice to know someone thinks you're beautiful, inside & out.
